Are you ever confused by words used by preachers? The other night I was trying to explain the word “trust” to a young person. We say we have to trust in the Lord and the young guy looked at me like, “Wow ‘trust’” . I explained it to him like this. Come over here and sit in the chair. He walked over and sat down.
I said, “Why did you do that?”
He said, “Because you told me to.”
And then I said, But why sit in the chair? What if you fell over?”
He said, “I knew it would hold me.”
It was a great picture of what the Lord wants. He tells us how to get saved and how to live for Him but we MUST TRUST in Him and Him alone. As racers you trust lots and have big time faith. You trust the car, the roll cage, the wall… All must be solid and do what they are supposed to.
The Bible talks about trusting God – Isa 26:4 – Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. Prov 3:5-6 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (from NIV)
I hope you have trusted in the Lord and are living for Him.
Have a great day racin’ in the SONshine,
